Aldous Harding : New Album 'Warm Chris' Out Now
25th March 2022

Warm Chris, the wonderful new album from Aldous Harding is released today. 


"A supremely singular talent." - Clash (9/10)
A sparse and oblique album whose gentle psychedelic folk and beguiling free association proudly resist interpretation.
- Pitchfork (8.2 - Best New Music)
"Defiantly peculiar… Venture into her total immersion world and one must accept that there is no map.”
Uncut (8/10 - Album of the Month)
“As with all things Aldous Harding, it’s a dazzling performance. Expect the ovations for her to echo down the years.”
MOJO **** (Album of the Month)
"An album that is as affecting as it is beguiling." - The Times ****
"Strange, sublime and completely unique, Aldous Harding is truly one of a kind." - NME ****
"Her masterpiece." - Record Collector ****
"A great musician who dazzles the listener." - DIY ****
“Delightfully weird.” - The Independent ****
"A brave and rousing piece of work." - The New Statesman

Featuring the singles ‘Fever’ and  ‘Lawn’, the New Zealander’s fourth studio album reunited her with producer John Parish, continuing a professional partnership that began in 2017 and has forged pivotal bodies of work (2017’s Party and the aforementioned Designer).  All ten tracks were recorded at Rockfield Studios and includes contributions from H. Hawkline, Seb Rochford, Gavin Fitzjohn, John and Hopey Parish and Jason Williamson (Sleaford Mods).
